A while back, a show on ANC invited Looking for Lola to appear in one of their segments. I was so out of my element because I don't normally do fashion gigs or style for people other than myself.
Here's the set of 4 outfits that I came up with, with help from my friends.
Speaking of help from friends, can I just give a giant shout-out to Alexi and Anjie? They were so awesome to make themselves available for this shoot! I am super missing LittleMissR (yihee, Sans!) right now so they provided me with invaluable support! Here's out improvised "backstage" area featuring Tita Becky's Victoria laundry soap in the corner haha!
Here's a sneak peek of one of the outfits Lexi wore! Doesn't she look gorgeous?
This girl can pull off anything. She was such a trooper!
Also, big snaps to our make-up artist, Anjie, who pinch-hit as a model too!
She does make-up for all occasions. I definitely recommend her for all your holiday celebrations. You can check out her website here.
Anjie was also kind enough to do my make-up and here I am feeling crazy awkward in front of the camera. Pretty sure I was babbling half the time. Also, those lights are insanely hot that it's difficult to look fresh. Thank goodness the production team of the show were so awesome that they let me take pauses to clean up or to get my thoughts together!
Here's Anj and I watching Lexi work it!
Top and necklace from SM Dept Store, tailor-made skirt using scrap fabric, F21 MJ platforms
Sorry about the photo quality! The store was pretty much in chaos and I had to sneak in some outfit shots while the girls were modeling.
My overlap skirt is again courtesy of Manang Rose (best seamstress ever!). I love the print and the bright colors of this fabric! I was lucky to get this because the entire bolt was used up, save for 1 1/3 yard that was partly burnt and torn. The shopkeeper sold it to me for a pittance and Manang was able to salvage a portion to make up this wrap skirt. Love the cut we came up with! Actually, she was also able to make bow-tie bracelets with the excess fabric. I think those will be sold in the shop soon so watch out for that!
Of course, the lightweight material of the skirt meant that the microphone's weight nearly left me indecent! I must've looked ridiculous constantly hiking up an already very mini skirt.
Anyway, I hope the segment turns out well despite the fact that I had no idea what I was doing. I'll post more details once I know when it'll air. Thanks for reading!
